8 – 9 April 2019

Mark your diary 

We are excited to announce that the Third Positive Education Conference (PENZ19) will be held once again in Christchurch on Monday 8 and Tuesday April 9 at Christ's College.

Building on the huge success of the previous two conferences - which attracted educators, SENCOs, RTLBs, counsellors, sports coaches, researchers, policy makers, parents and board members nationwide - next year's focus will be less on the 'why' of wellbeing in schools and more on the 'how and what'. How do you embark on creating a whole-school wellbeing strategy and what does that look like in your particular school?

Once again we are lining up strong and experienced international speakers but this year, more than ever before, we will be excited to share more of what is happening right here in Aotearoa New Zealand – as schools from up and down the country share their progress in Positive Education with compelling, inspiring and very 'real world' case studies etc. 

Mark your diary. Don't miss New Zealand's biggest and best wellbeing in education conference.
